Do you have worn, fractured front teeth?

Tooth wear is becoming an increasingly major problem. The main causes of tooth wear are: 1. Bruxism- grinding teeth at night time 2. Acidic diets 3. Stress causing extra clenching and bruxism 4. Gastric reflux 5. Parafunctional habits such as nail chewing, pen biting for example These can all lead to teeth that are fragile, weak at the edges, smaller and asymmetrical. This can lead to significant fracture of the teeth and require more advanced treatments such as root canals and crowns. However, if the areas are treated early, future problems can be avoided. For example, please view our case study below:

Uneven teeth, fractured teeth, worn teeth
Restored teeth, even teeth, new teeth, symmetrical teeth

This treatment took just ONE visit and did not require any drilling of the underlying tooth. Therefore this is completely NON INVASIVE and kind to the teeth and gums. Treatment completed by Dr Nissit Patel using Empress Enamel A1. Photographs are the sole property of Dr Nissit Patel.

Case of the Month August 2021- Social 6 lingual brace, teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding

Our case of the month for August was a straight forward one but effective. In many cases, we get asked to correct one or two teeth which really bothers our patient. Most of the time, this is perfectly feasible using modern day cosmetic dental techniques such as lingual braces and cosmetic bonding. For our case, one tooth had slipped behind the others and was in cross bite with the lower teeth. This is where the upper tooth actually sits on the inside surface of the lower tooth when closed. This is not desir… READ MORE

Case of the month June 2021- closing space with bonding

Our case of the month for June 2021 was one where spaces were closed using cosmetic bonding or teeth bonding. Often there are spaces between teeth which are either natural, developmental, after orthodontic treatment or following a trauma. One of the simplest ways to close the spaces is via bonding. Tooth bonding is a non invasive treatment where the tooth is added to using composite white filling material. In the case of closing gaps, there is absolutely no need to cut the tooth at all. The treatment is car… READ MORE

Case of the Month May 2021- ICON and cosmetic bonding

Our case of the month for May 2021 was a simple one involving ICON to treat a white spot and then cosmetic bonding to repair a small chip. Initially. we used Invisalign Express to treat some mild mis alignment. Putting teeth in the correct position will mean that that any future treatment will always look better especially bonding. The treatment in our case is completely non invasive. There is no need for any drilling, no needles of any sort and no pain! Furthermore, the cost is affordable compared to tradi… READ MORE
